Lawrence Nicholson, aged about 50 years, and the proprietor of the Windsor Inn, Patton, died there at about ten o'clock last Thursday morning from liver and kidney trouble with which he was attacked Tuesday in an acute form. His death was sudden and comes as a shock to his large circle of friends in the northern part of the county. Mr. Nicholson had been a resident of Patton about eight years, having for six years conducted the Commercial Hotel there before leasing from E. P. McCormick, The Windsor Inn. He came to Cambria county from DuBois 18 years ago and for a long time before locating in Patton, conducted the Central Hotel at Hastings.
The deceased leaves a wife and three daughters, the latter being Elina, wife of Dr. H. A. Fites of Patton, Miss Anna Nicholson, at home at the Windsor Inn, and Mrs. Emma Ulriea of Pittsburg.
Funeral services were held at the house Sunday afternoon and at 2 o'clock the cortege left Patton for Hastings where interment was made.
